Series Saturday: Montgomery’s by Jude Deveraux

One o/f my all time favorite series is Jude Deveraux’s Montgomery/Taggert series. In the this series there are four books that can be read as a series alone and that is the Velvet books. They are books 2-5 in the series and so good. When I was playing on GR the other day I stumbled across on of these books and KNEW this was the series I wanted to share today. If you haven’t yet tried one of these books now is the time with these books. If you want the complete list of books in the series click here.

All of England rejoiced on her wedding day. But Judith vowed that her husband would get only what he took from her!

At the flower-bedecked altar, the first touch of their hands ignited an all-consuming passion. Gavin Montgomery looked deep into her golden eyes and burned with desire for her…but his heart had been pledged to another.

Humiliated and alone in a strange castle, Judith resolved to hate this husband who took her body, but rejected her love…never admitting her fear of losing him.

But destiny held another fate for Judith…a fate that would keep at last…The Velvet Promise.

 

Bronwyn MacArran was a proud Scot. Stephen Montgomery was one of the hated English. He came to Scotland as a conqueror, saw her beauty and was vanquished. But still she would abhor him.

She owned a temper hot enough to forge the armors of battle or inflame a valiant soldier’s passion. Yet still she would resist him.

She became his reason to live, his reason to love. And still she would deny him.

But while clan fought clan, while brother took up sword against brother, and the highlands ran with blood — their destiny was made…and this mighty warrior pledged himself to his woman’s pride, her honor and her name — and made of their love a torch to burn through the ages!

They were both outcasts by a harsh decree — and on the brink of a shared destiny of passion! With her father murdered, her home burned, lovely Alyx Blackelt fled to the woods — and sanctuary in the camp of Raine Montgomery, a nobleman outlawed by the king’s edict. There she hid her beauty in the guise of a boy, and her sorrow in her work as Montgomery’s squire. But how long could such loveliness as hers be hidden? How long could such a gallant man’s desires be blind? And how soon — even as a blood feud raged between the Montgomerys and the Chatworths, as angry swords clattered in the name of family honor — one woman’s love would make all the difference…one woman’s love would inflame a hero’s passion, touch a king’s pity, and raise a song of praise in every English heart.

She came to him as a precious gift, a naked angel rolled in a rug. Once he gazed into her green eyes, saw her tangle of honey blonde hair, he was undone with passion. Elizabeth would never surrender. He was a hated Montgomery — she was a Chatworth — and the blood war between their families raged on, a wildfire of rape, murder, and betrayal.

Elizabeth vowed to fight the handsome lord, to resist the burning desire in his eyes — no matter how great the temptation.

    I LOVE this series! I recommend you read the first too, The Black Lyon. It takes you into the velvet books. It’s been so long since I’ve read these, I’m aching to go pull them all off my keeper shelf and give them all a good rereading. Thank you for spotlighting them today. 🙂

    I love Jude Deveraux too! But the Velvet books are not my favorite in the Montgomery series. I prefer The Awakening and, of course, A Knight in Shining Armor. They are the ones I’ve reread many times but the whole series is great.

    I have never read these books– or anything by this author, for that matter. I’ll have to change that! These books sound wonderful!

    I haven’t read these books either. Looks like it’s time to load up my Amazon account again.

    This really is one of my alltime favourite series. I hope many more people will enjoy them. Jude Deveraux is one of the best authors out there, but lately, I don’t see many reviews of her books.

    I haven’t read a Jude Deveraux book in a long time and this post reminds me how much I miss her books. I’ve really been enjoying her Edilean books but some of my favorites are of her older ones. The good thing is I haven’t read all of her backlist and can catch up soon.

    I love this series. It was one of the first historical series I read when I was a teen.
